Property Description

Zacatecas has a lot to offer the international traveller.

As you know Zacatecas is an old historical city. It was here in Zacatecas that the turning point of the Mexican Revolution came after its fall to the legendary Pancho Villa.

One thing lacking though, was a decent hostel with all the added extras that you like to see.
So I took the plunge, and have just opened the doors of Hostal Vila Colonial.

Our premises are situated in the heart of the Historic Centre behind the cathedral. We are five minutes by taxi from the bus station or 15 minutes on the bus

    I stayed with them for 4 nights and I have to say, i don’t think my visit would have been as exciting has it not be for them. The staff was kind and respectful even though I couldn’t communicate with them well (cause my Spanish sucks), the rooms were quiet and well maintained, and the view from the terrace was second to none. I had a front row view of the Catedral de Zacatecas and when the sun set boy what a view indeed. Highly recommend!

    Central location and the patio has a beautiful view. The rest is pretty basic: a bed, hot water, but 0 atmosphere.

    Very Good

    The beds were the hardest I have ever slept on one. I was the only one in the hostel for the whole weekend. Obviously this has something to do with Covid. The location is superb, walking distance to the Cathedral which you can see from the hostel’s rooftop. There was no cable TV nor wi-fi available. The owner is such a cool dude and friendly. I guess there are better options but if you’re on a budget I recommend this place.

    I didn't see another guest the two days that I stayed in January. The staff and their families were around during the day, but were indifferent to me. The hostel is not heated and there were many broken windows that need repair. An entire window pane was missing in my 5-bed dorm, which made for an uncomfortable and cold sleepless night under many layers of scratchy wool blankets, no top sheet. The hostel does have a beautiful rooftop patio that overlooks the Basilica and a piping hot shower !

    Their staff is really nice and always ready to help you find the right place to eat or to take a bus. But the amenities could really improve... there's no soap or towels in the places where you can wash your hands, there's not always paper in the toilets... And for my first night, I slept in dirty sheets. I arrived quite late so I didn't dare to complain right away. I did the next morning and they changed it right after. Mattresses are quite old and thin.
